BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

The present invention relates to fluid guides and more particularly pertains to a paint container lid for facilitating ease of dispensing of paint on a brush from a container.

2.Description of the Prior Art

The use of fluid guides is known in the prior art. More specifically, fluid guides heretofore devised and utilized are known to consist basically of familiar, expected and obvious structural configurations, notwithstanding the myriad of designs encompassed by the crowded prior art which have been developed for the fulfillment of countless objectives and requirements.

Known prior art fluid guides include U.S. Pat. No. 5,255,814; U.S. Pat. No. 4,949,884; U.S. Pat. No. 5,072,847; U.S. Design Pat. No. 246,892; and U.S. Design Pat. No. 341,318.

While these devices fulfill their respective, particular objectives and requirements, the aforementioned patents do not disclose a paint container lid for facilitating ease of loading a brush or dispensing of paint from a container which includes a rim engaging means for coupling to an upper rim of a paint can, and a fluid guide means extending across a portion of the rim engaging means for guiding fluid from a brush scraped against the fluid guide back into the can which can also be utilized for facilitating pouring of paint from the can in a directed stream over the rim of the can.

In these respects, the paint container lid according to the present invention substantially departs from the conventional concepts and designs of the prior art, and in so doing provides an apparatus primarily developed for the purpose of facilitating ease of dispensing of paint on a brush from a container.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

In view of the foregoing disadvantages inherent in the known types of lids or fluid guides now present in the prior art, the present invention provides a new paint container lid construction wherein the same can be utilized for facilitating ease of dispensing paint from a container on a brush. As such, the general purpose of the present invention, which will be described subsequently in greater detail, is to provide a new paint container lid apparatus and method which has many of the advantages of the fluid guides mentioned heretofore and many novel features that result in a paint container lid which is not anticipated, rendered obvious, suggested, or even implied by any of the prior art fluid guides, either alone or in any combination thereof.

To attain this, the present invention generally comprises a device for facilitating ease of dispensing of paint from a container utilizing either a brush or by pouring. The inventive device includes a rim engaging assembly for coupling to an upper rim of a paint can. A fluid guide assembly extends across a portion of the rim engaging assembly for guiding fluid from a brush scraped against the fluid guide back into the can, and can also be utilized for facilitating pouring of paint from the can in a directed stream over the rim of the can.

There has thus been outlined, rather broadly, the more important features of the invention in order that the detailed description thereof that follows may be better understood, and in order that the present contribution to the art may be better appreciated. There are additional features of the invention that will be described hereinafter and which will form the subject matter of the claims appended hereto.

In this respect, before explaining at least one embodiment of the invention in detail, it is to be understood that the invention is not limited in its application to the details of construction and to the arrangements of the components set forth in the following description or illustrated in the drawings.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

With reference now to the drawings, and in particular to FIGS. 1-6 thereof, a new paint container lid embodying the principles and concepts of the present invention and generally designated by the reference numeral 10 will be described.

More specifically, it will be noted that the paint container lid 10 comprises a rim engaging means 12 for coupling to a rim of an open upper end of a paint container 14 as shown in FIG. 1 of the drawings. A fluid guide means 16 is coupled to the rim engaging means 12 and extends across a portion thereof for guiding excess fluid from a brush back into the paint container 14. By this structure, a brush can be dipped into paint within the can and subsequently scraped against the fluid guide, with excess paint from the brush being directed back into the can, thereby precluding unintentional application of the fluid to the rim of the paint container 14 or an exterior thereof.

Referring now to FIGS. 2 through 6 wherein the present invention 10 is illustrated in detail, it can be shown that the rim engaging means 12 of the present invention 10 preferably comprises an inner annular ring 18 concentrically positioned and mounted relative to an outer annular ring 20. A plurality of handling tabs 22 extend from the outer annular ring 20 and are substantially coplanar therewith. The handling tabs 22 are spaced from one another so as to permit for manual manipulation of the device 10 during installation thereof relative to the paint container 14. As shown in FIGS. 5 and 6, the rim engaging means 12 further comprises a compressible annular projection 24 extending between the inner ring 18 and the outer ring 20. The compressible annular projection 24 is operable to be inserted into an annular groove of the upper rim of the paint container 14 so as to secure the device 10 relative thereto. To this end, the compressible annular projection 24 comprises an inner cylindrical member 26 extending substantially orthogonally downward from an outer peripheral edge of the inner annular ring 18. An outer cylindrical member 28 is concentrically positioned relative to the inner cylindrical member 26 and coupled thereto by an integral bend 30 extending between lower annular edges of the cylindrical members 26 and 28. The outer cylindrical member 28 is orthogonally coupled to an inner peripheral edge of the outer annular ring 20 so as to complete a definition of the rim engaging means 12. By this structure, the outer cylindrical member 28 is permitted to articulate relative to the inner cylindrical member 26 as the integral bend 30 resiliently deforms so as to frictionally retain the compressible annular projection 24 within the annular groove of an upper rim of a paint container 14 when the device 10 is utilized as shown in FIG. 1 of the drawings.

As shown in FIGS. 5 and 6, the fluid guide means 16 of the present invention 10 preferably comprises a depending arcuate guide plate 32 which is integrally or otherwise secured to an inner peripheral edge of the inner annular ring 18 and extends downwardly therefrom. An inclined planar guide plate 34 is coupled to and extends along a lower inclined edge of the depending arcuate guide plate 32 substantially as shown in FIG. 6 of the drawings. Accordingly the inclined planar guide plate 34 is oriented so as to reside within a plane oriented at an oblique angle relative to a plane containing the annular rings 18 and 20 of the rim engaging means 12. A dispensing aperture 36 is directed through both the depending arcuate guide plate 32 and the inclined planar guide plate 34 at a juncture of these two components and permits fluid residing within the paint container 14 to be dispensed in a direct stream from the device 10 as the paint container 14 is tilted. By this structure, an individual utilizing the device 10 can dispense paint from the paint container 14 without an unintentional application of paint to the rim or exterior side wall of the paint container.

In use, the paint container lid 10 of the present invention can be easily coupled to an upper rim of a paint container 14 as shown in FIG. 1 of the drawings. The radial spacing of the handling tabs 22 permits an individual to easily apply force to the rim engaging means 12 during coupling and/or decoupling thereof from the paint container 14 about radially spaced portions of the rim engaging means 12. The fluid guide means 16, when the device 10 is coupled to a paint container 14 as shown in FIG. 1, creates a directed stream of paint which flows from the paint container without unintentionally coating the upper rim or exterior surfaces thereof. It should also be noted that the rim engaging means 12 is dimensioned so as to completely extend over the upper rim of the paint container 14 such that a possibility of paint contacting the upper rim is substantially eliminated. The present invention 10 may be integrally stamped from a single piece of sheet metal or like material, but is preferably integrally molded from plastic or other polymeric materials.

As to a further discussion of the manner of usage and operation of the present invention, the same should be apparent from the above description. Accordingly, no further discussion relating to the manner of usage and operation will be provided.

With respect to the above description then, it is to be realized that the optimum dimensional relationships for the parts of the invention, to include variations in size, materials, shape, form, function and manner of operation, assembly and use, are deemed readily apparent and obvious to one skilled in the art, and all equivalent relationships to those illustrated in the drawings and described in the specification are intended to be encompassed by the present invention.

Therefore, the foregoing is considered as illustrative only of the principles of the invention. Further, since numerous modifications and changes will readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desired to limit the invention to the exact construction and operation shown and described, and accordingly, all suitable modifications and equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the invention.
